ABIS Tonearms

SA 1.2

The SA1.2B is the black version of the SA1.2, and all other specifications are the same.  With the introduction of the SA1.2B tonearm, along with the improved SA1.2, Abis has improved the performance of the original SA1 tonearm, already recognized by Stereophile as a meritorious design.  Though current Abis SA1.2 arms are substantially the same as the first version of the SA1 tonearm, the refinements in bearings and geometry improve on the performance of the original.  The result is an arm with substantial authority, the same as the original arm, but with even greater refinement and delicacy.
